  1. Might be worth just checking your cam timing as it's poss that the belt can jump a tooth or two when the engine backfires. only on the square tooth belt though. It did happen to mine so now have the later round tooth belt and wheels.
  2. Not sure i can make it now. First one i will have missed for ages.

  4. Sorry you are to you are not old enough.
  5. What about pro flex from wicks Cheap and the direction i'm looking at.
  6. Hi Ant . Soft focus makes all things look good. 70s film trick for fading divas.
  7. Good night. One Eclat, one Elite, one Elise. Two new members.
  8. Fast estate like the 70s M50 Elite.
  9. I hope to be there in the Elite. I have recovery in place just in case
  10. Hi Ant. I'm on holiday for a week or so i can come over and have a look as i have done my diff and brakes. I will give you call when i get back.
  11. I am already going to an event at Hockwold in the Elite with a friend in his Eclat. Nice chill out event. I have been to Elveden in the past. They do pack the cars in so don't think you will be able to open your door very far.
  12. The delivery guy who went base over apex would not agree. He was warned and not hurt. Good job he could not see me laughing.
  13. You might get a copy of the workshop manual off the forums as a full member i think. welcome to the forum.
  14. I have sets of decking and will never have it again. It's a pain to look after and in the winter it turns into a skating rink.
  15. I would love to see a pic if possible as i have to respray my Elite as at the moment i have filled the hole in. I have been given a good second hand unit thanks to oilmagnet. Another option would be nice.
  16. Yes i'm going through the historic process at the moment for my 1978 Elite, and they do need an MOT. Just waiting for DVLA to get back to me.
  17. I should be there. For some reason i have got the 16th on the calendar!! Glad i read your post.
  18. Hi all my Elan failed its MOT on emissions. Does anyone know if there is a replacement for the mixture potensiometer as lotus no longer list it.
  19. Elan at GTS to be sorted. Need to get on with Elite now. I think i'm going to sell it too concentrate on the Elite.
  20. No not for a couple of years. It failed on emissions. 6%
  21. Hi all. My self and Paul Houlgate have been to the last two meetings with club lotus. We found them very friendly. and are trying to arrange runs out etc. Good mix of cars and partners as well. I will be there in the Elan if it passes it's MOT today if not it will be the Saab but i will be there.
  22. Hi Ant thats total. Just fitted a new steering rack. Rear toe should be ok.
  23. Hi all. Looking at the workshop manual the front wheel tracking on my Elite 504 is three MM toe in. Seems a lot. Anyone had there's set to this without problems. Thanks for any info. Clive
  24. As a mechanic and have to work on second hand so called modern tech. We are told by the management to not go on road test without a phone. I live in the sticks so the amount of time is short that it would be of any good. Dont trust trust it.
